Crushed Ladybug Thomas' debut album "Hope to her" is a lofi-country moment filled up with the lovable bittersweet spirit of love and loss, clearly influenced by alt.country and 70's singer/songwriters. Reaches from the country- rock songs "First in Line", "Shades of Green" and "Mallards" over to the gospeltouched "Then I Kissed Her Softly", "Black and Blue" and "24 Seven" and further to the starkness of the a capella song "Pale" and the dreamlike landscape of "Jeanna". This album, released oct 14th 2003 is expressing many nuances in deed when touching old loves, helping angels, sweet memories, depression & laughter, country charm and long nights.
